POLYMYTH x Miss Information
POLYMYTH x Miss Information is a project bringing together a range of creative practitioners to explore the narratives and grammar enmeshed in the technologically accelerated now. Scripting realities and using speculation as a tool, the project seeks to create and illustrate contemporary myths in order to think upon the present, using Miss Information as both a character and a strategy.

Today we’re staging a new performance developed out of the Rogue Agents programme - 4pm @zkmkarlsruhe with @sinforvictory @edgillman_ + @marianneforrest - if you happen to be in Karlsruhe...come!
